Iron sights or optics?
I prefer iron sights
With my 30-30 I can use both with no changes
I use both for targets and hunting. Depends what I'm doing that day. I do prefer to have both on my scoped rifles just in case. I love shooting irons.
I prefer scopes or red dots. I can't see iron sights worth a darn. Gonna have to break down and glasses one day. But I'll stick with my Walmart readers as long as I can.
It depends on what I'm shooting. If its a rifle I like a scope mainly because I like to see just how far I can stay accurate. I guess I'm still kind of one of those people who would like to be able to match snipers shot for shot, even though I know I have no chance of getting to their skill level. Anything else though is iron sights obviously. Don't see the point on a scope on anything else.
I personally like irons with green rear and red front.
They are factory sights, but after using them I love them.
First pic: rear
Third: aimed down
Fourth: both with my barrel mounted laser on.
I like optics personally.
Iron sights are fun at the rang, but I have a squirrel or a deer at 50 to 300 yards, I want only one single solitary spot punching shot.
Just sight in your irons real good, and use a laser as a point of reference, they make lasers that you can put in your barrel so you don't run the risk of messing up when you are zeroing them in.
iron sights when they are quality irons. unfortunately 99% of the iron sights on rifles truly suck.
300yards iron sights. rock river arms AR15A2 National Match
when im concentrating and in the zone i can do just as well with iron sights as a scoped shooter usually better.
